Value Added

Without doubt, the added value that an independent education delivers is the main reason for the success of the independent sector as a whole. At Rossall, we add value in a multitude of ways; in the classroom, our high expectations, high standards, high quality teaching and tailored support for each individual means that students can achieve academic success beyond expectation. Outside the classroom, value is added through our exciting extra-curricular and enrichment programmes. The opportunities for developing skills and character surpass expectation and add immeasurable value.

New ISC research looks at the differences in attainment between independent and state school pupils.In the research, commissioned by the Independent Schools Council (ISC), it is also revealed:

  • Attending an independent school in England is associated with the equivalent of two additional years of schooling by the age of 16
  • Independent schooling accounts for a 0.64 of a GCSE grade increase.
  • At GCSE level, independent schools have higher average scores in all subjects
  • If independent schools were measured on international PISA outcomes, they would outperform the best European nations and be level with Japan and South Korea.
